DIVISION II PRO: New Second Tier Pro League to Fill Gap in Women’s Game
April 8, 2021 — this is the day that marks the birth of a new women’s professional soccer league – the Women’s Independent Soccer League, or WISL.
WISL IS A LEAGUE CREATED BY WOMEN FOR WOMEN.
Branding Laden with Equity Symbolism: The league’s ownership group unveiled its name, branding, and symbolism across its varied social channels.
It is about creating more opportunity for women.
“Today there are only ten pro teams for women, that means there are only ten head coaches …. Now there will be more opportunities for women,” says WISL Managing Director Carrie Taylor who is leading the league’s development. “One of our goals is to have the league run by women who are hired because of their merits.”
“THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO RISE ABOVE.”
Carrie Taylor, WISL Managing Director
